Kings fire Dave Joerger after three seasons as Sacramento's head coach

This move comes on the heels of the team giving a four-year extension to general manager Vlade Divac to extend him through the 2022-2023 season.

Some tough decisions are ahead for Vivek Ranadive and company, one of those decisions being who the head coach will be for the Kings going forth.

Sacramento finished the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season with a 39-43 record - their highest win total since the 2005-06 season.

Hard decisions lie ahead for a franchise that finished with their best record since Rick Adelman exited stage left following the 2005-06 season. Adelman was let go shortly after.

The 45-year-old head coach has been praised for his efforts this year, finding success with with his young core.

Per Amick, Divac was "rewarded" for the Kings' "surprise" run in the 2018-2019, despite the team missing the playoffs.

The lack of consistency has been apparent for a decade.

With respect to Divac and the organization, this doesn't make a lot of sense. Still, this is a big gamble that may not pay off in the end. They were in playoff contention late in the season. Once Barnes became of a member of the Kings, they went (11-17). Fox and Hield were the leaders in a high-octane offense that emphasized the fast-break and transition game.

Sacramento averaged 114.2 points per game this season, which ranked ninth in the league. Unfortunately, the Kings were in the bottom five of scoring defense this season. "We have to believe in them and give them a chance to take advantage of their work and talent".

He'd been on the job less than a year, and all signs pointed to firing head coach George Karl with the team two games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. With that said, the Grizzlies have fizzled with David Fizdale, Joerger's replacement. He was sacked from there as well.
